    I installed windows 8 (consumer) on a separate partition.Then I expanded that partition, using EaseUS Todo Backup.Problem: when booting, I got an error message: user profile service failed.the error was classified as: 0xc000000f.I reformatted the partition, and restored my windows 8 installation, using EaseUS Todo Backup.Now I get a different error message: file missing: windows\system32\winload.exe.What to do? I don't have a rescue disk for windows 8, I only have it for windows 7 (which is installed on a separate partition, and it works!)Please advise, thanks

    hey, my windows 7 rescue (recovery) disk actually repaired the problem. I never would have thought...

    Actually, I had the rescue tool on usb (probably doesn't make a difference)
